Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Ilford is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Ilford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ilford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ilford may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My husband and I are planning to purchase a 2 room ground floor flatin Ilford with a loan from a bank. We like our conveyancer in Ilford yet our bank inform us now that she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our lender panel firms or keep our Ilford conveyancer and incur the extra costs for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The mortgage company mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including almost all conveyancing solicitors in Ilford : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your bank.
